Ok for scientifically minded here, lets talk about anti vaxxers. Firstly I will give 2 definitions.
noun: vaccine; plural noun: vaccines
a substance used to stimulate the production of antibodies and provide immunity against one or several diseases, prepared from the causative agent of a disease, its products, or a synthetic substitute, treated to act as an antigen without inducing the disease.
noun: immunity; plural noun: immunities
It is a fact that effective vaccines take many years to develop, 10 years is often quoted, for long term testing purposes and more extensive data collection and analysis. A science.
Seasonal Flu vaccinations only cover specific strains of the influenza virus, are out of date in months and need to be administered yearly. It is for this reason that I dispute that these season shots should be classed as vaccinations. They do not provide immunity by definition.
I am not high risk for flu and believe they are useless for people like me to take as they are ineffective when talking immunity. My choice.
I am writing this so that when people like me are encountered, anti seasonal flu "vax's" types, that to assume they are anti vax is incorrect.
What I am is anti promoting medical products as vaccines when they are not. And then getting the whole pro vax brigade come down on you like a ton of bricks.
Not anti vax, anti bullshit science.
